Need help deciding?

Not sure if you want to transfer to a university to earn a Bachelors, or become a technician in two years or less? The classes aren't interchangable - get help choosing your path if you're not sure which option is right for you.

Mechanical Engineering students learn to use math, science and communications to solve real life problems in climate control systems, manufacturing, and improving energy efficiency. Students develop drafting skills by using computer-aided drafting software (AutoCAD) and learn to work in teams to solve problems. PCC's small classes and support systems help you succeed. Courses are transferable to OIT in Mechanical or Manufacturing Technology at either the Klamath Falls or Portland Metro site.

Why PCC?

Most people know that community college costs are low and that classes are offered at convenient times and locations, but many aren't aware of the high quality of our instructors, labs, and student support services.

In additional to their academic backgrounds, all our engineering faculty have practical experience working for high tech manufacturers, consulting engineering firms, government agencies, and other "real world" employers. And that brings the "real world" right into the classroom. We also offer outstanding laboratory facilities and a wide array of student support services to help our students succeed.
